republicans. pollster john mcglocklin went through the results of the last four elections and on average the republicans had 1% more than the democrats. so that poll is off by a factor of 8. so, instead of obama winning by one. romney would win florida by seven. in ohio, obama is shown winning by five in the "times" poll. they had 8 points more democrats than republicans. and historically there were only 2 points more d's than r's. so that's 6 points off. so instead of romney losing by 5. he wins ohio by one. and in west virginia. >> they have owe become that winning by 2. but they have 8 points more democrats than republicans and historically there is one point more republic than democrat. that's off by a factor of 9. romney wins virginia by seven. >> that's pretty much what rove did on his little board. here's my question. can a pollster assume that all democrats and all republicans are going to vote for whoever is running in their party? can you assume that. >> yeah, you can. >> bill: with any certainty. >> yes, you can you get about 90% voting for their party. so you can it's the indepen

for romney, who is speaking in colorado at a campaign stop and when he does, you will hear his comments live e e e e this bible changed the world. i'm kirk cameron. four hundred years ago our forefathers risked their lives to bring this bible to the shores of america. because it contained the principals for economic liberty, political liberty and religious freedom. the 1599 geneva bible. it was the first complete english translation, complete with chapters, numbered verses and 300,000 utterly unique study notes. it actually came out before the king james version and because the government didn't authorize it, it was outlawed. but it was a bible by the people, for the people, the book that built america. and now for the first time in 400 years it's available again in a beautiful leather edition. i have one, i want you to have yours too. please visit genevabible.com and get your copy of this rare and historic version of god's word today. thank you and may god bless you. >> ohio is experiencing a economic recovery president obama will take credit for that as he campaigning here. m

disastrous first debate for the president. up four points in the cnn poll. this new arg poll, another nonprofit telephone poll has him up only two points. this is i think the florida of 2012 in that mitt romney can win florida. he can win virginia. but he really must win ohio to have a really credible path to 270 votes. that's why you see both these campaigns sending their top contenders, sending the president and the republican nominee to ohio and back again over and over. >> yeah. rachel, i want to talk with you about early voting versus election day voting in that state. this ohio poll shows the president winning about over 6 in 10 early voters but losing election day voters, 51 to 44% to mitt romney. and the romney campaign is saying the president has peaked too soon. what do you get the sense from the ground read there? >> i agree with susan. ohio is the all-important state of this election. you're really seeing the obama people talking up early voting. you hear president obama talk about it again and again. you saw michelle obama voting early. they feel pretty good about their o

is all about his company. >> they said four for four years they will invest nor and more here at home and we haven't seen that. bill: cooper will vote for mitt romney. peggy shannon's cookie business is that rare example of a startup that is thrived in the great recession. after just two years, she is now moving to a larger building but the economy remains her concern. >> from a professional standard you think this is a pretty big investment. are we ever going to get our money back and i'm not sure actually but i think you have to have faith in the economy and faith in america. bill: she has a positive attitude during an election season that turned increasingly bitter even when it comes to sweets. >> when we bought put the obama cookies up we have four or five people within an hour friend us on our page. there is no winning that conversation. it is a little test to have people judge you on your politics as a business owner. bill: chile is a cincinnati tradition. one week before the election nearly everyone in the packed restaurant says they are voting. this woman for president ob

presidency in virginia, battleground state, it's a toss- up. the post poll had the president up by four. other polls have it closer or have even romney slightly ahead. i think that is really a dead heat going into election day. and the, you know, the movement has been towards romney in virginia as everywhere else, following the president's poor performance in that first debate. i do -- my gut feeling is the president still has a little bit of a lead there, but anything could happen on election day. the polls could be wrong, obviously, to the extent that he's ahead, it's just barely outside the -- the president is ahead, just barely outside the margin of error and that's really one to watch on election day. >> this is notable because the president von virginia last time around. it will be interesting to see how goes virginia and how goes the nation. >> if the president wins virginia, he will win the reelection. it's hard to see how romney gets enough votes in the electoral college if he loses virginia. >> we'll see you again soon. allison, back to you. >> 8:21. it's 43 degrees. on anothe

four days to go until election day, the last jobs report is in, we have been waiting for it. president obama and mitt romney are using it to make their closing arguments but which one will voters believe one ahea whd to the polls? former economic advisor to george h. w. bush and karen, an advisor to president obama and former ambassador to the organization of economic cooperation and development. welcome to you both. with this move people who are on the fence? >> no. anybody on the fence understands the u.s. economy is weak. sure, you can say 7.9% unemployment is an improvement. i can't even say that is an improvement. the obama administration pledged they would drop down upon the great 5.4%. that certainly didn't happen. i'm curious as voters look at the newspapers tomorrow will the newspapers tell the truth that in this report touted as being positive wages went down. hourly earnings went down, hours worked went down. this is really a sad commentary if we have to interpret this somehow positively. gerri: clearly we have a long ways to go, wants you to hear something the pr

have a republican ad in min mip. so that shows the trajectory. romney is on offense and obama is on defense in the final week. >> eric: obama on defense, he went to new hampshire and only got four electoral votes in new hampshire. he went up there to grab four. is that desperation or protection? >> it's protection. look, this race is going to be very close. everybody recognizes that. could come down to a few votes, a few states. i want to comment on what is going on with the weather. this actually has political implications. first of all, the public is going to be focused on the storm the next three or four days. it will take the focus off the election. it will be harder for the candidates to get their messages out. also, obama has the lead in virginia, 4-point lead. he's ahead in ohio. and to the extent that this -- the weather conditions in those states take the attention away from the election tmay freeze things in place. i think obama is going to win both virginia and ohio, i think it will be very, very close. i think this election's going to go doub to the wire. i suspect you w

. the romney campaign says that it shows the economy is at a virtual standstill. and in america's heartland, you may think the jobs report has been a boost for president obama, he won ohio four years ago. and the economy overall is doing better than the rest of the country. but voters are still undecided. and as poppy harlow heard, there are still concerns. >> we basically started this in a run-down garage. >> reporter: that was 33 years ago, how is business? >> slow. >> reporter: you see, kevin has watched the business at his metal company fall and fall, down 20% this year. >> mid-2012, it started to slow down. and it has been a downward trend ever since, probably may. >> reporter: but his iowa is not the iowa the economic numbers illustrate, largely spared by the housing crisis, reaping the benefits of a strong farming sector, and unemployment well below the national average. >> i realize here, we're not bad in iowa. but our customer basis not basically in iowa. >> reporter: matters how california looks and how nevada and virginia looks. >> right. >> it is difficult for mitt rom

backed him four years ago. ed henry is live on the bus in dubuque. so you heard that they're getting giddy in the romney camp. any levity in the obama camp now? >> they feel very strong here. they think the president will be here in iowa in a few moments. remember, as you noted, this is where it all started for him in 2008. in fact, his final rally monday night, late in the evening before he goes home to chicago to get ready for the returns will be right here in iowa. it's where it all starred for him. they think that kind of grassroots on the ground support is what's going to help him. remember, iowa only has six electoral votes. yet you have the president of the united states coming in here on this final weekend. mitt romney, the republican nominee, was here this morning. a lot of high profile, high powered contact with the nominees themselves here in dubuque a small area. gives you an idea of how intensively they're fighting for every single electoral vote. what the president is doing on the stump, he was just in milwaukee. slightly bigger battle ground, one democrats hoped they h
